Josefine, can you post the pic of Steel Tiara, please?
I am sure that I saw it before but, I can't remember it.

This is an extremely old-looking tiara.And too tall,as well.I don't think I would like to see Victoria wearing it again.

I google searched it and found a detailed, but somewhat blurry, pic in someone's photobucket on myspace-not sure how long it will be up, but here it is:

Thank you very much! You're very kind.
I remembered it. It's one of the best tiaras of CP Victoria. It looks very very lovely. I love big & tall tiaras.

I love this tiara of CP Victoria :

I think that the cut-steel tiara is one of Victorias best tiaras - the best beeing the fringe. I like that it´s a bit bigger and i can´t wait until she tries on the bigger things in the Bernadotte collection - the next choice i would like to be the Connaught tiara, and i think she could do something good with the ruby tiara too - we´ll just have to wait and see..

I adore the cut-steel tiara. The style was quite popular in it's time, but hardly any of them survived. That makes it very interesting from an art historical point of view. Also it suits CP Victoria really well, the dimensions are perfect for her. Much better than the funny four buttons tiara she seems to be so fond of. And I don't like the fringe tiara very much. It looks so harch and spikey. Nothing soft and flattering in it!

I didn't know about the steel-cut tiara. Does anybody knows it's history? It certainly looks good on her. I hope it's a strong contendor for her wedding.

In fact, as you probably know, the tiara was 'misplaced', meaning lost and forgotten, for a long time until it was re-discovered by Queen Silvia in the late 1970s - in some dusty old cupboard in Stockholm Palace and by sheer coincidence.
The tiara is Napoleonic and probably came to Sweden through Queen Josefina, but after that, its history is something of a riddle.
There is also a choker necklace and earrings in cut-steel matching the tiara, so it's actually a whole parure, but Queen Silvia has worn the complete set only two times in thirty years.
here is what Boris told us about the tiara at the last page of this thread

I think it is really a lovely piece, filled with intricate detail. I have read that at one point they were also quite valuable because of degree of skill that was required to craft one.

I read the same. When it first was possible to work steel this way, that was really special and this style was very popular. When the new technique stopped to be new, most of these tiaras disappeared because the material value is rather small. So it is very special that this tiara survived. Who knows, maybe it was a good thing it was 'misplaced' or it would also be lost.

Is it just steel, or are there stones in it as well? It's hard to tell from the pics.

No stones at all - that's what makes the piece so unique. Everything is in intricately cut steel and set in gilded brass.
There is a matching choker necklace and earrings in cut steel, but Queen Silvia has worn the complete parure only twice in thirty years, and CP Victoria never.
Here Queen Silvia is in 2007 at one of the annual Bernadotte representation galas, wearing the whole cut steel set:

No, I don't think Victoria ever wore this set. It's part of Queen Silvia's private jewelry, she has worn it since the late 1980s.

The baden fringe tiara truly looks best on CP Victoria. It is absolutly stunning, even from the side. It is one of my favorite tiaras.
